Retraction: El Capitan Mac OS X

I need to print a retraction to my earlier tirade against El Capitan. At this moment it seems like I’ve been able to fix my issues, and I think it was a conflict with font management software, and NOT the fault of the poor El Capitan. I’ve deleted my other article. People stumbling upon this will probably have no idea what I’m talking about. I just want to say that I finally found the right help from a guy named Linc on Apple’s support discussion forums. Yay! Happy computing! And, FYI, if you happen to get error messages saying you don’t have permission to open a file or save a file, just be warned that it may not have anything to do with permissions at all!

Oh wow! You just got your MacBook Pro Retina and installed CS6 only to discover that the text and icons are jaggy! AHHH! TOTALLY SUCKS! Don’t worry, there is an easy fix. All you need to do is open Photoshop, go to the Help tab and click UPDATES. (I’m including a screenshot).

It will open the application manager which will download and run the updates that are needed. It should update all of your CS6 apps, so they look beautiful and crisp. See the before and after above (note, the png takes away a bit of the crispness). You’d think when you *just* installed CS6 it would have automatically updated everything, but no. Anyway, this is painless and you’ll be happy with the results!

Hey! You just got a new MacBook Pro with Retina display and you want to read your favorite books with the Kindle app, right? Well, you might notice that if you downloaded the Kindle app from the Apple app store, the text is blurry. BUMMER! Don’t despair! Try this fix before you cry. Delete your Kindle app that you downloaded from the App store, and deregister your Kindle for that device. Then go to the Amazon store and get the Kindle app there. Here is a LINK as of 4/6/14. Install this app instead of the other one. It might say you are attempting to over-write a newer file. That is fine. This app from the amazon store is the one you want! It should fix your blurry situation. Be sure to register this app so you can get all of your books. I hope this helps! :)
